    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'”.


    Thus, on this MLK Day, I want to honor Dr. King’s legacy and answer his call to action by launching a new interview series titled “The Color of Tech” as part of my ongoing effort to uplift and empower those in my community with knowledge and information.


    For this inaugural interview, I have selected Stephanie Sylvestre, co-founder of Avatar Buddy LLC. And, I am proud to say that she is also my mentor.


    Technology is not new to Sylvestre, who has performed many different technical roles throughout her 30-plus-year career.


    Her latest endeavor finds her utilizing that experience to address the critical need for personal coaching and mentorship with the development of cutting-edge products that effectively use artificial intelligence technology as a 24/7 available digital aid.


    Our candid conversation covers a broad range of topics including the challenges faced by minority-owned technology startups to cultural issues women face in the world of technology to the importance of girls entering STEM fields early in their development.
